Access Issue: Portions of Mt. Elden are closed for Forest Thinning Details
As part of a massive forest thinning project portions of Mt. Elden are closed to entry. Currently access to West Elden is closed.
Continental Drift is an audacious route that climbs up a wide white streak twenty feet right of The Black Solitaire. Start on bulbous rock with big moves between big holds. Take your rest at the break, and bear hug the block to access the thin pocketed climbing above. The crux involves some serious crimping, body tension, balance, and a deadpoint to an undercling pocket. Or a slight variation to the right that follows a faint path of crimps. I don't think it changes the grade. However both demand some serious cranking. You do however get a decent shake after that, but the steep 5.11 to the anchors will surely give you a run for your money.
